Loeb said he said this so that the next time an object like the one from 2017 passes, scientists will examine it more carefully. He said the object didn’t look like a comet, what some called it, but behaved like something with “extra thrust”. NASA said in 2018 that it was “the first object ever seen in our solar system that is known to have originated elsewhere,” but said the object’s origin was unknown.
Loeb writes in Extraterrestrial that the object was probably some sort of debris from a extraterrestrial technology from many light years away, according to CBS News. Hopefully, the aliens who got rid of them are the kind kind, not the bust-out-of-your-chest kind.The Harvard professor said scientists should look for “potential messages in a bottle” with objects like Oumuamua instead of focusing on radio signals as evidence of aliens. He also said that these types of ideas are not popular in the scientific community and are “out of the mainstream” and “shouldn’t be.”
“We need to be open-minded and look for evidence rather than assuming that everything we see in the sky has to be rocks,” Loeb said.
For more foreigners read about these possible signs of life detected on Venus then read how a the galactic alien federation may already be in touch with the American and Israeli governments. Check out this story on a study which claims that extraterrestrial civilizations have destroyed themselves by progress after that.
